EVA WITHERS SITS: PORTRAIT OF A LOVELY AFRICAN AMERICAN WOMAN (VINTAGE REAL PHOTO POSTCARD)

withers

A lovely African American woman poses for her portrait as she sits in a wicker chair. She is wearing a long coat and a white hat. She is wearing a ring on the middle finger of her right hand. She does not look particularly comfortable in front of the camera. In fact, she looks a bit apprehensive or afraid. The photographer and the location of the studio are unknown. The woman’s name is written on the reverse of the postcard.  Research found too many women named “Eva Withers” which prohibited positive identification of the woman in this photo. Therefore, biographical information about Miss/Mrs Withers is unobtainable. This vintage real photo postcard has an “AZO” stamp box which indicates it was produced between 1918 and 1930.
